Self-care is imperative these days! After a tough year in 2021, the New Year brings new opportunities to prioritize yourself in 2022!
If you are reading this it is safe to assume you made it through 2021, Whew!! what a year if we learned nothing else during this particularly interesting timespan we learned that Self-Care and the state of your well-being is extremely important.
2022 is officially here and Self-Care should be at the very top of your resolutions for the New Year however figuring out ways to enhance your daily routine without imposing on your current schedule isn’t the easiest thing to do but no worries we have got you covered.
Here are 7 simple ways that you can enhance your overall well-being and sneak in a little Self-Care while you’re at it, without making a major change to your daily routine.
- Smile a little more
One of the best things you can add to any new wellness routine is to smile, yep you read that right SMILE! It has been proven that when you smile your blood pressure and stress levels drop not only that but smiling is universal no matter what language you speak you understand a smile.
- Take care of your skin
Treat yourself to a hydrating moisturizer, moisturizing is not only beneficial for your skin but also serves as a great way to relax and rejuvenate. The SAVISH Hydrating Moisturizer is 100% vegan and will leave you glowing with radiant, fresh skin.
- Choose you first
One of the biggest causes of stress is having a lot of things on your to-do list but the amount of time you’ve given yourself to get it done is unforgiving, prioritizing your day, setting boundaries, and just saying no can help reduce daily stress according to Everyday Health.
- Write it Out
Journaling is something that we highly recommend you add to your wellness routine in 2022, there are many benefits to keeping a journal but Berkley's Greater Good touches on how it’s particularly good for mental health and developing the right hemisphere (the creative side) of your brain. When your mind is engaged in creativity, your stress levels drop.
- Fresh air
Taking a moment to step outside and get some fresh air, is a great way to help with your mental focus and energy levels. Oxygen travels through your blood and helps keep your cells energized.
- Take 5
Taking just 5 mins a day to decompress can be the small little boost you need to add into your self-care routine, whether it’s at the top of the day to get ready for the hustle in bustle or at the end of the day to bring in a days’ worth of work it’s a great way to clear your mind for whatever task may come next.
- Drink up
We know we know! you hear this all the time but we are going to say it again just because it’s a new year, DRINK YOUR WATER! this is the easiest and best thing you can do for your wellness/self-care routine this year. Drinking more water alone will help boost your energy levels and get your skin back to its former glory.
All of these options are simple and essentially free ways to improve your overall well-being, remember it all starts with you so always remember to be good to yourself.
